About me

I'm 67, 68 on November 8th - I've worked as a gardener and has some training as a tree surgeon from The Forestry Trust. I've managed my gardens most of my life, growing all kinds of trees from Eucalyptus to Yew (Taxus Bacata) and a lot more in between. I cycle (on a bike) photograph things, walk and live in Northumberland on a hill over-looking The Cheviots some twenty miles away. On a clear day I can see the Cheviot and Simonside - when its not clear I can't see much beyond the farm two miles away. I have an established Yew, Birch and Larch in my front garden as well as other plants such as Cistus Ladinifer, Magnolia and Verbanum Bodnantiense and other well stocked plants.
